Lets see if that mochill is on the money this time or not. haha

 

Very cool - good man that Atomik! I very much look into your impressions, no matter how wrong they might be LOL! You seem to be favoring the BA sig, so it will be interesting to see what you think of these dynamics (which really seem to be somewhere in between BA's and dynamics).

 

But me? Spazzing? Let's keep my spazz in perspective here, considering I was one of the guys who was semi-spazzing about the mt300's. So yes, it's mochill's spazzing that should bear more weight and scrutiny (although I agree 100% with his spaz lol!).

 

If it's 1000% spazzing that you are looking for, then no worries, it's coming. Got the ws99's now, and they are very spaz-worthy.

Glad you made it through that first day though. You will get into the groove and the routine, and you will do great.beerchug.gif

That was fast delivery..The unit looks cooler than the Ele that is for certain..I hope those end up being a more refined sounding dac..The cost is right and it seems they are using some premium parts..Give em the treatment. Look forward to hear how they sound after a few days..

I think maybe just as much. Can't freakin' take them off my head, and this is without the prerequisite burn in. May the spazz begin!!!

It's not only the bass - the entire signature is addictive. Definitely gets the head bobbing! L3000.gif

Mind if I ask how great the bass impact is with the xba-40s versus the fxz100s and 200s? Since it has its own subwoofer, I am hoping it is inbetween the fxz100's and fxz200's impact and quantity, as well as quality.

The way I hear it, the quantity is less than both the FXZ's but quality is better.  It's an armature woofer compared to the dynamic ones so this makes sense to me.  It has plenty of quantity though and doesn't get too far behind when it's in the music.  The difference here is that the FXZ's will always add bass to the music but not the XBA-40's.  What's better on the 40's is the overall sound. The midrange is much better and forward and the treble region adds good sparkle and is detailed more so than the FXZ's.  I feel that the stage is wider on the 40's as well and instrument separation is more apparent.  Overall, the 40's are better for all genres of music and sound better all together.  My apologies to the FXZ lovers (including myself).  

 

 

p.s. iphone un-amped.  I'll try it out with an amp next.

I'm glad you didn't say all of that when I was at my weakest impulse xba40 purchasing stage a week or so back lol!

Nice, thanks for the response. I am now compelled to purchase the xba-40s next and compare it to the fxz100, ckn70, and the xba-40s. Looks like it is enough then, the ckn70s had a similar amount of bass and weaker impact than the fxz100s, but had cleaner bass. I can't wait to hear even better bass from the xba-40s, as well as the whole spectrum. The speed on the bass is clearly better than most dynamics, right?

You got the WS99's which are tops.wink.gif  But the 40's might be in your future.

Amping the FXZ's adds a better flavor but same goes for the 40's as well.  The bass is still the same as I described earlier but the FXZ's bass just sounds better when amped.  The 40's bass isn't fast but faster than the FXZ's.  Not sure if it's better or faster than most dynamics but I really can't think of any right now that compares to this quantity of bass and beats it in a dynamic.  The RE-272's come to mind but it lacks quantity to the 40's to even compare.  I think you'll be satisfied with the bass and the whole sound altogether.  It is a spectacular phone.  It has a big sound like the FXZ's but cleaner, better separation and airier.  The XBA-30/3's are not joke either.  The bass is less in quantity but faster, tighter.  More forward vocals.  But for us bass guys, the 40's are the ones to get.
